Isle of Wight Awards

The Isle of Wight is an amazing place, filled with diverse and remarkable places to go, stay and eat. These are enjoyed by over 2 million visitors a year (as well as 140,000 of us locals), and the strength of Isle of Wight tourism businesses puts us up with the top destinations in the UK.

Last year we launched the first ever Red Funnel Isle of Wight Awards and had a great response from local buisnesses in the tourism industy nominating themselves as the best in their category.  At the beginning of the year we collected over 50,000 votes from visitors and locals voting for their favourite places to stay, eat and more over 20 categories.

From the public's shortlist, our panel of expert judges have chosen their top 3, and we can now present to you the winners!

 Thank you to our Guest Judges:

Robbie Lane - IOW Guru
Sarah Dawson - Red Funnel
Will Myles - Visit Isle of Wight
Alix Robinson - MyIsleofWight

Thank you to all Islanders and Visitors who voted in their 1000's to support local Island businesses.
